Elevated Work Platform Hire (EWP)

Safe Hire have the largest independently owned fleet of Elevating Work Platforms including scissor lifts, boom lifts and cherry pickers in the top of the South Island. There are many different applications when working at heights, so it is vital that you get the right piece of machinery to suit your application.   

Knuckle Booms

Knuckle Boom Lifts are designed to access virtually any workplace at height in a safe and productive way. They have the advantage of driving while at full height and also being able to reach up and over obstacles to get personnel and materials direct to the work area.


Electric Scissor Lifts

Electric scissor lifts are quiet, clean and versatile. If you need to work indoors at height an Electric Scissor Lift is the ideal machine. They are compact to enable you to access tight areas or to manoeuvre between aisles and around other machinery, while battery power ensures there are no diesel fumes and minimal noise. They have a tight turning circle and non-marking tyres which minimises the possibility of damage to indoor floor coverings.


All Terrain Scissor Lifts

All terrain scissor lifts are diesel powered so ideally suited to outdoor work where uneven surfaces require additional stabilisation or where 4WD access is necessary. However with adequate ventilation they can also be used indoors. An articulating rear axle and hydraulic stabilizers on each corner of the machine provides a level working platform regardless of the terrain.


Cherry Pickers

Cherry pickers are trailer mounted lifts designed to work primarily from a static location. Stabilisers provide a level working platform regardless of the terrain. A folding boom allows the user to get up and over, where a conventional scissor lift cannot.



Giving your team professional and adequate training is part of taking all practicable steps to ensure employees safety whilst operating equipment or working at height. Don't put them or yourselves at risk, inquire now and get your guys booked onto a course before it's too late.
